Stoven Family in Germany

Posted: 1206569507000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Stoven
I'm looking for information on my great-grandfather's parents. My great-grandfather was Christopher H. Stoven born in Schelswig-Holstein by Wilster Aug 6, 1865. He had a brother named Nicolaus according to a letter I have.

Christopher's name served in the German army when they fought Denmark in 1848 and again in 1870-71 when they fought France. I am told that during the war against France, Christopher's dad was shot in the ankle which left him with a stiff leg.

Christopher came to America in 1880 and found himself in Utah. He and his wife Florence Martin had two sons Henry Andrew Stoven and Detlef William Stoven. Detlef was my grandfather.

If you can help, I would GREATLY appreciate it!
